Collecting Inspiration: Contemporary Illustrators and Their Heroes (Trailer)

Stay tuned after the credits for a surprise ending!

Picture books instill in children a sense of awe, magic, and wonderment, but who inspires the illustrators themselves—the people who bring incredibly imaginative worlds to life? Illustrators Tony DiTerlizzi and Mo Willems offer a behind-the-scenes look at an exhibition they co-curated at The Eric Carle Museum in Amherst, MA, "Collecting Inspiration: Contemporary Illustrators and Their Heroes." The exhibition gives visitors a peek into the minds and motivations of an array of talented artists working today including Sophie Blackall, Sandra Boynton, Ashley Bryan, Eric Carle, Bryan Collier, Marla Frazee, Laurie Keller, Loren Long, Patrick McDonnell, Yuyi Morales, Kadir Nelson, LeUyen Pham, Jerry Pinkney, Robin Preiss Glasser, Judy Schachner, Lane Smith, and—with a special contribution from his foundation—the late Maurice Sendak. Filmed at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA.

This exhibition runs May 23 - November 27, 2017.
